​The theme for the 2018-2019 School year is "Hero's Around Me".  Pick up a PTA Reflections Entry Form and category guidelines today by visiting the Palomar Council Reflections Program Page.


The Reflections Art Program is a wonderful way for you to express your creativity and to be a recognized as an artist in the Mt. Carmel community and beyond. Each year, 30 students are recognized with a California State PTA Award of Excellence for their artwork and receive:

  • Opportunity to showcase and perform their artwork at the California State PTA convention

  • Prizes, including an Award of Excellence medal, certificate and $100 Savings Bond presented on stage at convention

  • Expense paid trip for award-winning student and 1 parent/guardian to California State PTA convention


This is your chance to express who you are as an individual through one or more of the following:

      Dance Choreography

      Film Production


      Music Composition


      Visual Arts

      Special Artist


These Award of Excellence entries, in turn, represent California State PTA at the National level Reflections Program. Get those creative juices flowing and participate in this fantastic PTSA program!​


The due date for our region in this National competition is Monday, October 29, 2018. Students can enter submissions in one of the 6 categories above: dance/choreography, literature, photography, film production, music composition or visual arts. Submissions are due Monday, October 29, 2018 in room B5 or to the front office prior to October 29th with the entry form & student consent forms

At the very bottom of the online-fillable entry form, the Artist Statement of "10 to 100 words describing your work and how it relates to the theme" is crucial to the judging.
